EIFI supports Engineering Skillnet
An earlier Ibec Engineering Network skills survey revealed that more than 83% of firms are facing skills shortages and Engineering Skillnet is designed to address that problem. “The engineering skills shortage is especially apparent in the electrical sector,” says Mark Keogh, Chairman of the EIFI Education Subcommittee and Vice- President for Building & Industry, Schneider Electric Ireland.
“Our industry is becoming more ‘digitised’ and there is currently a requirement for up-skilling and continuous learning in order to maintain our competitiveness. As the voice of The electrical industry within the greater engineering community we help identify common skill shortages and training needs, and ensure that these are then Skillnet programme.”
The EIFI has a very strong educational sub-committee and it has already developed quite a number of new initiatives and training supports. Examples include The CPD training programme on the IS10101 Wiring Rules organised in collaboration with ECA/CIF. The Guide to IS10101: 2020 National Rules for Electrical Installations training programme has been uploaded to the ETCI and CIF training web pages and is is freely accessible.
